J-Pouch and Lactulose

Posted , 3 users are following.

I've suffered from blockages with constipation symptoms since having my colon removed due to ulcerative colitis.

Last week I stopped all dairy and started feeling wonderful. Per suggestion from a J-Pouch friend, I got a script for Lactulose and started it two days after stopping all dairy.

Now I don't know if I should be taking the Lactulose beings I'm quite sure I'm lactose intolerant.

    If you have no Colon its pretty pointless to be taking Lactulose :D

    That's not true, I use lactulose occasionally and I had UC surgery too, with blockage type symptoms. My specialist nurse says her patients use it amongst other constipation type remedies. Though I find it does give me gas. (I too have blockage type symptoms).
